Why not just pay players? Why is your enjoyment diminished by the players on the field getting fair compensation for the value they create? I thought America believed in capitalism.

It wasn't that bad. The final season drags somewhat but it isn't much different to how all the post season 2 seasons went. I thought the finalee worked however so my feeling about the whole season are probably better than someone mid run. ...

[quote]All good points. I predicted 3 losses. Not a losing season. [/quote]
I think it depends more on the defense. If a couple of DT's on the roster mature, it could be a special unit and as long as the offense isn't terrible and a turnover machine, fewer than 3 losses is more than possible. ...

I don't know how any LSU fan could be terribly disappointed if Kenny Young didn't sign with us. He has been pretty clear through the whole process that he is probably going out of state. Given that we are still in it at all at this point is more of a surprise in my opinion....

Everything about those stats tells me that the Star system is working. 5 stars are drafted more often than 4 starts who are drafted more than 3 stars. Also, his analysis is shite. The football factory thing is perhaps the more ridiculous of all. You can't take how much of a percentage of the enti...
